Boxer Martin Murray has put in for permission for the former Cartridge World on Duke St to turn it into a pub,i knew about this in October last year as his mum told me.

I know there's lots of pubs and eateries everywhere which every town is now coming to.

Good luck to him but i'm saying newt :blackeye: :lol:

Looking at Cartridge world.Above it there is still the old setting.I used to walk quite a lot down Duke st. Ive mentioned many times about how many of our old buildings have been decimated on the ground floor usage by slotting in all these shops. Luckily on many fotos on here taken  still show these old bits.So when you are walking along our streets.take the time to look up as you dodge the dirt ridden pavement spots you may be surprised!

The date on the front Sibi is MDCCCCXIV

Is that not 1914?

I was pointing to the 1927 date over wizzard.Yep i can never forget the sign date over bank.I was wondering if a stone sign had broken off  over the pawnbrokers.

When Someone put a note on prev about the bank number.I mentioned that when i was younger knew a girl who lived in a flat behind the bank

The family name was STANTON.I remembered he was something big IN THE NAVY,!!maybe the Sea Cadets.COME ON ,NOT THE YMCA,!!!
